LITTLE GIRL O

 
2015
Assemblage: 25.5" x 28"

Photographic Editions: Archival Ink on Cotton Rag

'Little Girl O' is a portrait of Oprah Winfrey as a little girl.The original assemblage is made up of the 64 books from the 'Oprah Book Club'.

A stencil has been made for each book, and then hand painted by the artist.

 

This piece seeks to portray Little Girl Oprah, growing up impoverished, abused, troubled;

and against all odds, triumphing, and making something of her life. The books represent not only her belief in education and learning; 

but also, her desire to share and to give back. To influence as well as inspire others to grow.
